The Islay representative in the 'Classic Malts' series is a deep, dry and exceptionally peaty bruiser. Probably the most pungent of all Islay malts, Lagavulin is not for the faint-hearted but inspires fanatical devotion in its many followers.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by David Broom for Whisky Advocate
Lagavulin is a classic example of how smoke isn't a blunt instrument that covers everything in a fog, but an element that works with all the flavours produced in distillation and maturation. Lagavulin isn't 'smokey,' its peat moves into a weird territory of Lapsang Souchong tea and pipe tobacco, fishboxes and kippers. It smells of laurel and light cereal, but is always sweet. The palate shows more creosote, with hints of kelp and a little touch of iodine. Complex.

Really enjoy the 16 y/o Lagavulin. Not surprising that I also enjoy Lapsang Souchong tea - the taste and nose are well suited to a night of camping with friends!
I love a good single malt scotch, and this one is excellent. Just tried it for the first time today and I'm very pleased. This might very well end up becoming one of my favourites. The smokiness of this one is strong, one sip and and a breath out with the nose makes me feel like a dragon. But it's not all smoke, many wonderful notes to enjoy here. And it's very smooth, one if the best in my opinion, and I've tried quite a lot.
The smoke flavor is overwhelming I will not buy it again
The peatiness is beautifully balanced against some caramel sweetness, rich, smooth and delicious. Even my better half who is no whiskey lover absolutely loved this neat with a little ice.
Absolutely wonderful. I love Islay whiskey but this one was my 4th Islay variation and remains my favorite. Every sip I take is a complete experience of its own and provides a level of complexity that would probably exhaust my character limit in my review. If you know you like peat in your whiskey, just buy it. It's absolutely a no brainer.
